Kids and Youth Rock Climbing Camps

Looking for something wild and exciting to do this summer? Come join us for our Rock ‘N Rage Summer Camps! Our rock climbing camps are specially designed for two age groups: kids ages 8-11 and youths ages 12-17. Both camps are for any and all abilities, no experience is necessary! These camps are great for building confidence, exercising those young muscles, and making lots of friends. Kids and teens will learn rock climbing skills, safety and courtesy in the gym and at the crag, rope skills and, best of all, that rock climbing is an amazing sport!

And to top it off, each participant gets a very cool Rock ‘N Rage Summer Camp t-shirt. Join the Crux for summer fun, friendship and making lots of wild ‘n crazy memories.
